Ask a question

Beautiful purple handwoven 100% natural silk fabric has been made based on a find from grave no 944, published in "Die Textilfunde aus Der Grabern, Birka III" by Agnes Geijer. According to Geijer's work, the pattern in original find was not printed, made during the weaving process. The size of the pattern on the original fabric was small and this reconstruction is woven in the same pattern size.

The fabric shines in the most beautiful way, it changes the color depending on the light, so it is difficult to show its color on photos.

Now the price is REDUCED from 44 EUR to 39EUR! This is a temporary, spontaneous offer!

Colour: purple for the background + golden beige color for the pattern (other colors in the shop).
Width : 112 cm
Price for 0.5 meter, you can buy more of course, if needed.
Handwoven fabric
100% natural silk
Dry clean or wash in cold water with no detergent.
The fabric is rather thin, not like taffeta silks.
The 4th photo shows the size of the pattern.
